Studio executives have announced that Open Road Films will release JOBS - the highly anticipated film chronicling the story of Steve Jobs' ascension from college dropout to one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century - nationwide on August 16, 2013.
The new movie gives audiences a detailed look at the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs daily business from 1971 through 2001. By plunging into the depths of his character filmmakers hope to create an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs' life.
The film is directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote and Neverwas) and written by Matthew Whiteley. JOBS also features the work of Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and was produced by Mark Hulme.
JOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
